many analysts believe as egypt goes, so goes the arab spring for the rest of the region. joining us now is senator john mccain. he recently traveled to egypt at the request of the president. senator, you came back a changed man, at least on the issue of whether the u.s. should cut out -- should suspend aid to egypt. what made you change your mind? >> well, first of all, i wanted to give them an opportunity to do the right thing after the coup had taken place. and it was pretty clear, to say the least, that they have not only not changed, but they have orchestrated a massacre, as you mentioned. we don't know, a thousand or many thousands wounded. we have no credibility, candy. that's the problem. because we know that the administration called the egyptians and said, look, if you do a coup, we're going to cut off aid because that's the law. we have to comply with the law.
